Demolishing the house where Tia Sharp was sexually assaulted and murdered will prevent it from becoming a sick “tourist” attraction, a local councillor has said.I...
Well, no wonder we have a housing crisis!
Councillor Simon Hall worries the site will receive the sort of interest which followed other prominent murder cases, such as the Gloucester home of serial killers Fred and Rosemary West.
“I don’t feel it’s right to expect anyone to live in the house or to have it potentially as a place which attracts undue attention over the months or years to come,” he said.Why not ask all those legions of homeless whether they'd be happy to live there?
Croydon Council plans to eventually replace the house where Tia was killed with new homes.
“It is our intention to demolish the properties at 19, 20 and 21 The Lindens, New Addington, as soon as we can,” a spokesman said.
“We then plan to build family homes in their place.”Good news for whoever's got the contract with the council. Bad news for the Croydon taxpayer.
